Further examination of the Breath

.
Visualize a balloon being inflated, similar to the inhale.
.
.
It takes effort to inflate a balloon or the lungs.
.
.
The exhale takes very little effort, as it releases the pressure built up from the inhale.
.
.
The inhale loads the lungs and the exhale releases the pressure, as a balloon expels air with the opening of our fingers.
.
.
The inhale is cool, the exhale warm.
.
.
Bring awareness to the differences between the inhale and exhale.
.
.
The pauses are different also.
.
.
The pause after the inhale feels pressurized, and takes effort to hold back the expulsion of the breath.
.
.
The pause after the exhale is relaxed, easy without the pressurized lungs.
.
.
It is a opportunity to balance the complete cycle of the breath.
.
.
The inhales and exhales are similar in duration as the two pauses.
.
.
The breath has so much more depth, power than we realize.
